Association of TGF-beta1 codon 25 (G915C) polymorphism with hepatitis C virus infection.

Abstract

Cytokines play a key role in the regulation of immune responses. In hepatitis C virus infection (HCV), the production of abnormal cytokine levels appears to contribute to the progression of the disease, viral persistence, and affects response to therapy. Cytokine genes are polymorphic at specific sites, and certain polymorphisms located within coding… (More)
